The only thing I can think of that would cause a "thumping" noise is if the intake hose has gotten super soft and is colapsing and releasing. Other than that, we are gonna need more info on the noise.

If you can hear it while standing outside looking at it, then it's not the intake hose colapsing. Unless it has a separated piece inside it. Can you pull the intake hose and start it with open turbo and see if you hear it? Also, is the air filter box closed tightly, if so is the filter snug in there? There should be nothing that makes this sound you are describing. Only other thing that comes to mind is maybe a burnt intake valve that's pushing air back through the intake stroke causing the turbo compressor to surge. I'm at a loss here.

Open the air box and start the truck, take a look. Or don't start it, just open the air box on look around to see whats broke or has marks that should not have marks.

Check the hose, give it a squeeze, see if it collapses real easy or not. Tell us what you see, or post a picture if you aren't sure.

And someone that knows about electrical stuff look at the volt meter delay thread, I posted a video...But don't respond here cause then this gets

What do you mean by the pushrod broke?
It might be time for valve springs.
